Looking at the makefiles in question would certainly help more than
just some OS names. Url of your app?
   gnu tools? autotools?
All are more or less unix like, but unix's not unix.
Esp. such high-powered unices, which could come without gnu at all.
Not just a simple gnu linux or bsd, which are closest to cygwin.

At least it's no VMS, MVS/OS-390 or lispmachine, so call yourself lucky.
